Seal 7 CD expected 6th November / LP expected 4th December [details soon] 9th album from the legendary Seal! “The album concerns the most sung about, most talked about, and most documented emotion – love,” he explains. “I tried to capture all of the wonderfully different dynamics of love, whether it’s the anger, the acceptance, the bliss, the sadness, the elation, or the recklessness. It’s this emotion and the ways it makes us feel. It’s about the extreme joy and the extreme regret as well as all of the crazy things love makes us do.” Warner Bros CD Pre-Order

All Tvvins Too Young To Live 7" from the ace All Tvvins who played New Slang recently. The duo made up of members of The Cast Of Cheers and Adebisi Shank are quickly becoming a much talked about band. They've had comparison to Haim, Bloc Party and New Order. We think throw in a bit of Foals and Two Door Cinema Club too and thats about right! Warner Bros 7"
Formation Young Ones EP New EP from South London twins Formation who take strong influence from New York disco / post punk sounds... Title track “Young Ones” is a belting clarion call to the dancefloor, a vigorous, percussive workout which conjures the ghosts of punk funk greats such as Liquid Liquid and The Rapture. The dreamy “Take it All Away” and hypnotic “No Great Change” however, mark a surprising change of pace, slowing down the tempo and weaving a gorgeous, melancholy spell over the listener. But it is with the closer “Back Then” that Formation flex the sheer diversity of their influences. An infectious, elastic track, it twins the rhythmic drive of the snare with warm organ tones, harking back to the pulsating roots of Northern Soul while also looking defiantly forward, transcending an array of genres while still maintaining their own very distinct identity. Warner Bros 12"
Tori Amos Little Earthquakes Expected 13thg April Reissue of Tori Amos' debut album! Emotionally and musically intense, Little Earthquakes shows that the piano is as much a rock & roll instrument as the guitar. Tori Amos's debut (if one disregards Y Kant Tori Read, as one would be well advised to do) is at once listenable and challenging; she takes on every topic, from sex to gender to religion, in an uncompromising manner. Her music appears gentle at first, but this appearance is deceiving, as one quickly learns upon listening to the wrenching "Crucify" or the almost violent "Precious Things." By the time the album gets around to "Me and a Gun," sung hauntingly by Amos without accompaniment from her piano, the juxtaposition of Amos' sweet voice and the emotional complexity of her lyrics is both familiar and shocking.

Tori Amos Under The Pink Expected 13th April Reissue of Tori Amos' second album! She's playful with her signature piano accompaniment, but allows for a twisted mess of guitars, violins, and bass loops, which are quite enigmatic like Kate Bush as well. "Baker Baker" and "Bells for Her" are aching with ballad-esque beauty, but the seething "The Waitress" sparks Amos' inner devil. She's quaint at first, but rages into a scalding vocal queen. It makes her even more a pioneer for female originality and independence. Singles such as "God" and "Cornflake Girl" are sultry and provocative, depicting that she's everything but shy. Under the Pink is typically melodic, but it contains a heavy desire. Amos is still breaking into something more definitive as both a woman and a singer/songwriter. The lyrical imagery is much more wide open, something that will become Amos' ever-changing swan song. Warner Bros LP Pre-Order
Built To Spill Untethered Moon Expected 20th April Excellent indie-rockers Built To Spill are back with Untethered Moon Untethered Moon is the first Built To Spill album recorded with new band members Steve Gere (drums) and Jason Albertini (bass), who join guitarist/vocalist Doug Martsch. BTS’s creative process continues to ebb, flow and evolve in its own orbit, reemerging on record for the first time since 2009’s There Is No Enemy with ten new songs that fit at once into the band’s resonant catalog while infusing fresh energy into that signature sound.
